Buckingham Valley Vineyards & Winery
Buckingham Valley Vineyards & Winery began after Jerry Forest and his good friend Vladimir Guerrero, who dreamt of making wine for a living, planted five acres in 1966 and produced less than 1,000 gallons in the early 1970s. The site has grown to more than 40 acres, producing more than 30,000 gallons a year.
Since 1970, the vineyards and winery have been owned and operated by the Forest family: Jerry, his wife, Kathy, and their sons, Jon, Kevin and Chris.

DID YOU KNOW?
Buckingham Valley was one of the first wineries started under Pennsylvania's Farm Winery Act of 1968, which allowed wineries to sell wine directly to the public if it was made from state-grown fruit.
The vineyard is among the largest of Pennsylvania's more than 140 wineries with more than two dozen varieties of wine ranging from deep, oak-aged reds to light whites.
Buckingham is the only winery in Bucks and one of a few in the state making naturally fermented sparkling wine.
SEASONAL AND MOST POPULAR WINES
The winery offers Nouveau, the new wine of the season, in November and Holiday Spice, or spice-infused red wine, in the winter.
